James Fowler departs Killie

James Fowler has left Kilmarnock Football Club by reason of voluntary redundancy, following a restructure.

James has served the club well as Head of Football Operations. We thank him for his time with us and wish him every success in the future.

A Killie legend and cup winning captain, James returned to Rugby Park in November 2019 and led on bringing our Women’s First Team under club control.

James was passionate about the development of our younger players and helped create enhanced loan pathways for our up and coming prospects to test themselves within the SPFL pyramid and beyond.

Having made 460 Killie appearances during a distinguished playing career and earned a deserved place in our Hall of Fame, James’ place in Killie history remains assured.

James said: “I’ve enjoyed being back at the club during one of the most challenging periods in our history as we dealt with the impact of a global pandemic.

“I was delighted to see the club regain our Premiership status and look forward to what the future holds for Killie.

“I would to thank the Board for the opportunity and I’m confident that the team will succeed under the guidance of Derek and his backroom staff.”

Director Phyllis McLeish said: “James will always be welcome at Rugby Park and we wish him all the best for the future.”
